I believe it has a flat top upper with removeable carry handle, and is said to be a "competition match" rifle. All of my experience with AR rifles has been spent on the M4 style setups exclusively, and I know nothing outside of that. I am aware of the fact that Colt is generally held in high regard when it comes to carbines like the LE6920, but does the same hold true for a rifle like the one mentioned above?
Any information you can provide will be appreciated, as I need to make a decision about this deal rather quickly.
The HBAR means heavy barrel. In competition shooting where you are firing many rounds in a short time, the barrel will not heat up and change accuracy as fast. A big advantage. Look to spend from $600 and up on one. Scoped, bench rested, and sighted in at 100 yards it should place all shots in a 3 shot group of 1/2" or less.
